The Double Robotics iPad-Equipped Teleconferencing Robot Is Shipping It’s impossible to be in two places at once. But Double Robotics, a wheel-equipped robot with an iPad for a face, has finally made that possible. The company has begun shipping units of the Double to customers who pre-ordered and coughed up the $2,000 to get one. In fact, the first hundred are already safely in the homes and lives of their new owners. Occipital Raises $1M (And Counting) On Kickstarter To Bring 3D Scanning To The Masses Boulder & SF-based startup Occipital is probably still best known for its Red Laser and 360Panorama apps, but it confirmed today that it raised over $1 million on Kickstarter to bring its Structure 3D sensor to market. The Structure isn’t just any 3D sensor though. It’s an incredibly small one — so small, in fact, that it can onto the back of your iPad (note: it’s compatible with any iOS device with a Lightning port) and connect without completely killing your battery life.
You don’t think you can meditate? We can help! We have always felt here at Intentional Chocolate that eating chocolate is a zen like experience.

So we thought what better than to highlight that experience than with a Chocolate Tasting Meditation. Yes, that is right! If you can eat chocolate you can mediate. We collaborated with the Rev. Goji Smart Lock At Goji, we have developed a technologically advanced, beautifully designed smart lock that gives you complete control over access to your home using your mobile phone.

The two companies have just announced that they’ve taken this smart roving robotics platform and stuck this pricey enterprise video conferencing monitor on top, all to facilitate West Wing-style walk-and-talks with colleagues who couldn’t be bothered to schlep into the office. We’ve seen plenty of curious telepresence rigs before, but this is one of the few that makes it a point to break away from the confines of a desk. Once everything is put together, the Ava 500 stands at about 5’5″ and artfully dodges office debris the same way the more janitorial units do.
